      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I just wanna say a big thank you to Rick the wonderful administrator of this site, this is the first quality site I've been on that I can get questions answered. The MN DNR is the only other page that I've found that's decent, but it still gets smoked by this site.... so thanks Rick... I'd be way more lost without this site.

I too agree that this site is wonderful!

Rick has worked hard over the past couple years, ensuring fishingminnesota.com is a friendly and educational place to visit.

Occasionally, people forget how to handle themselves on the site, but more often than not, it remains clean, informative and fun!!

I too thank Rick!

Keep the rods bendin'!!!

Thanks guys. I appreciate the kudos.

Unfortunately I do not get much time to fish with all the work that goes on behind the scenes.

As a matter of fact, I haven't been able to visit the forums since Tuesday because of the work load.

The folks to really thank are our most excellant Forum Guide Pros. They maintain the quality of their forums, answer questions and try to keep things fun.

The following truly go above and beyond to keep Fishing Minnesota moving ahead:
A big thanks goes to-Toad, GullGuide, Jim W, and Pwaldow.

Now don't think the other Forum Guide Pros don't work hard to help everyone, because they do. It's just that the Forum Guide Pros above have taken on a lot of extra work behind the scenes to help everyone have a better experience.

If you check out the Events where anglers actually get together these guys are instrumental in putting it together. Not to mention also keeping the forums interesting, fun, and friendly.

Participate in an event and you will come away with a new appreciation of what fishing fun is.

Trout Day is coming up soon. E-mail Jim W if you would like to participate or work with him. You'll enjoy the day and if you want to help him, the rewards could be more than you bargained for.

Thanks again for the Kudos.

It's nice to read them when I'm sitting here just plugging away, while you guys are fishing smile.gif

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
